Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With its second installment, Mosley’s Crosstown to Oblivion series, which combines two short novels in a single book in the manner of the old Ace Doubles, shows some genuine promise. This pairing is a definite improvement on the first installment, the often unfocused The Gift of Fire/On the Head of a Pin (2012). Here, both stories are solid. Each involves men whose lives are suddenly changed for the better. Disciple’s Hogarth Tryman is elevated by the actions of a mysterious stranger from wage slave to head of a major corporation; Merge’s Raleigh Redman sees his entire life altered, on an almost spiritual level, by an alien visitor who offers him an amazing gift. Of course, there are catches: Merge’s alien visitors are fleeing their own dying world and must merge with humans to survive, and Disciple’s mysterious benefactor has some ominous reasons for helping Hogarth. Mosley’s writing is more sure-handed here, and his characters are more fully realized. If he maintains this level, or kicks it up another couple of notches for the next installment, Crosstown to Oblivion could turn into something special. --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Crosstown to Oblivion offers a long and visionary reach. (NPR's All Things Considered)

The stories sparkle with literary energy, shedding light on the human condition from an atypical perspective. Mosley proves himself a master of both outsider and speculative fiction, rising above mere genre to ask the big questions. (Shelf Awareness on Merge/Disciple) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
The short novels that Walter Mosley writes in his Crosstown to Oblivion series are finely written and quick to read. The latest, Merge/Disciple, includes two novellas that are paired as perfectly as when a wine complements a tasty plate of food. Mosley riffs on an expanded reality and what may be possible. In Merge, a lottery winner uncovers a richer treasure than his winnings. In Disciple, the protagonist finds himself promoted from being a data entry clerk to the head of a company. However unlikely the plot, readers are likely to enjoy the tightly written prose and the big questions underlying the stories. Mosley is a fine writer and readers who like to think about life and its possibilities are those most likely to enjoy these two short novels.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)

It was a page turner. I could not put it down. I neglected my homework. Walter Mosley has done it again, he's a great writer.

Amazing depth of imagination while managing to portray the gritty tedium that clings to the regular guy. I wasn't sure about purchasing this short novel only because I loathe finishing any of this author's work, he is just that good.

Nice short story from a master. A quick read but well worth it. I generally buy anything Walter Mosley writes as soon as it is published. Normally Mosley writes mysteries, but this is speculative fiction; not really science fiction, but close enough for most. If you don't like SciFi you might not like this, but the writing is impecable.

What can I say about Walter Mosley? Phenomenal, Impressive, Prodigious, and Remarkable; this was a great short story that offered the reader something to think about outside and beyond our small world.

Incredible story of the redemption of the human race. Mr. Mosley paints a tapestry that even modern day special effects would find difficult to display on the big screen of American cinema. The tale, while borrowing from other works basic ideas of alien intervention, diverges into a completely different conclusion and solution to the evils of mankind.
